Before I get into more details, the Oregon Eugene Mission is now on Facebook. You can friend me if you’d like! Communication rules are still the same, but I’ll be posting things on Facebook that you’ll be able to like and share with others that might need an uplift.
Okay, my week has been crazy as well!! We had Zone Conference this week in Grants Pass! It was so fun to go back up there! During Zone Conference we went over the new Facebook initiative. It was so crazy! The work is changing and I’m so excited to be apart of it. This is going to be the way that we can flood the earth with uplifting messages about Jesus Christ.
We also were trained on how to be more effective, obedient, loving missionaries. I’m excited to implement these into my missionary work. After Zone Conference, I got permission to go to Mark and Jamie Hasting’s house for a bit. I only had 15 or so minuets to talk to them, but it was so worth it. Jamie got baptized not to long ago, and Mark just received the Melchizedek Priesthood. It was so great to catch up with them.
We spent Thursday night in Medford due to the weather. It was winter driving conditions, and it was super dark... President Orton gave us permission to stay the night and drive back . We were able to stay for New Missionary Training morning as well. That was good because Elder Smith would have had to Skype in if we were down in Yreka, and that is just no fun.
Let’s see... I don’t think I have much else to report on. Mark and Megan have been out of town for the past week, but they finally got back home yesterday. We are going to teach Mark tomorrow, so that’s good.
This is the last week of the transfer! I won’t know what’s going to happen until or .
Also, bad news... my iPad screen is kinda broken. No, I didn’t drop it. It’s not cracked. There is something behind the screen that is going out.. the bad news is the church won’t fix it, and the iPad is out of warranty. It’s going to need a new digitizer, which means a whole new screen. It’s going to have to come out of my own pocket as well... maybe for Christmas instead of getting me anything, could you help me out with that? I’m not sure how much it’s going to cost but I imagine it’s going to be expensive. If not, that’s okay. I have enough saved that I’ll be just fine. I’m waiting until after Transfers to investigate further.
I’m glad Elise is having fun and is doing well. I also am glad she’s spending some time around the temple. That is such a great place to be.
Sounds like dad gets to be home this week and is off next week. That is good... it stinks he is gone all the time.
Before I go I just want you to know I this church is Christ’s Church. Christ lives. He loves us. He wants us to be happy, and we can find lasting happiness through him. I know, because I feel that happiness in my life.
I love you mom! Thanks for everything you do!
I was able to send Bracken a quick email telling him our neighbors just got him a visa gift card. This was before we even new his Ipad was broken! He was so grateful that they did that and will help so much with that repair cost. It will be there soon as we stuck it in his latest in package I mailed on Tuesday. :)
